Back to school season is here, but college is a whole different ballgame. Not only do you need to get your textbooks and school supplies, but you also need to prep your dorm for your arrival.
No one feels productive when they're studying in a room that resembles a closet more than it does a home. That said, here are a few things to bring with you to college to make your dorm as comfortable as possible this year.
The laundry detergent you use at home. While in college, you may be tempted to buy the cheapest detergent possible to save money. Cheap detergents can make your clothes feel stiff and itchy. What's more, a different smell on your bedsheets can keep you up at night. Give yourself the comfort of home by using the same detergent and fabric softener you use at your house. Approximately three out of four people say they get a better night's sleep on sheets with a fresh scent.
Comfortable sheets. Speaking of sheets with a fresh scent, be sure you're bringing bedding with you to college you can comfortably sleep on. Hypoallergenic waterproof sheets are great for college because they reduce breakouts and keep allergens at bay.
A thick mattress pad. Unless you bring your own mattress from home and slide your dorm mattress under the bed, you're going to be sleeping on something that resembles a rock more than a mattress. To fight back against your new bedsprings, cover your dorm mattress in a thick mattress pad before putting your sheets on it. Your back and joints will thank you later.
A fuzzy rug. The floors of your dorm most likely won't be the comfiest, whether they're tile, hardwood, or carpet. Give your feet something to look forward to when you wake up in the morning by putting a thick, fuzzy rug by your bed.
- All the pillows. Another great way to make your dorm room comfortable is to bring your pillows from home along with a few extra. The additional padding will help support your back while you read on your bed and a good body pillow will create a barrier between you and the chilly dorm wall.
